Situated in the grounds of Caerau Gardens, a charming and unusual bolt hole for a couple to stay in. With under-floor heating, a Sauna and a full cinema system with pull down screen and a stunning audio system from Monitor Audio. The surroundings are wonderful, we even have a lake for fishing, swimming or perhaps kayaking.

You may also be interested in Tyn Llyn. More remote and with a newly added sauna plus other improvements in the most fabulous location by our lake. Do a search!

The space
Sauna and cinema system with large screen and superb acoustics, there are dvds but feel free to plug in your own devices via hdmi. Very comfortable large mattress accessable by ladder above sauna and under a velux window to the stars. Everything you need in a compact and stylish space. BBQ and seating area plus a new deck with more chairs and table overlooking the view. There is even a sunken trampoline outside your door! If you would like a really remote farmhouse have a look at Tyn Llyn by our lake for 2 people or maybe children camping, we’re just putting a sauna in there! Or Tai Isaf if there are more of you, so remote you need to borrow our4x4 unless you have your own. For families of up to 6 but there is electricity and heating, certainly no neighbours!

Where you’ll be

Sarnau, Wales, United Kingdom

The area: - Bala is a fairly small town of about 2000 inhabitants but it has all you need in the way of shops and is about 5 miles from us. It has the lake railway and of course the lake. Sarah and Mark of bala water sports can help you out with that and all sorts of activities, see their web site. There is white water rafting on the Tryweryn too.

A lot of visitors do Snowdon, it is an obvious choice but there are lots of less crowded mountains too. Loads of other walking choices of course and a lot of people just stay and walk from the door.

We have 600 acres of hill, mountain and valley and our lake. On the land are stone circles and flint aged/Roman camp “Caer Euni”. The lake is 18 acres and good for swimming. There is a kayak you can borrow and course fishing for pike and perch, we can find you some tackle. We also have a couple of mountain bikes for you to borrow.

Elsewhere in Snowdonia there is so much to do that web searches are your best bet but lots of coast obviously and castles. People love “zip world” and “bounce below” they need booking.

Food: - the bryntirion pub in Llandderfel or really special food at the Tyddyn Llan or Pale Hall. Rhug isn’t bad either and there are good Indian restaurants in Bala and Corwen. We can do meals for you until about 6.30pm and in the season our cafe is open until 5 anyway.

I hope this gives you some ideas to research! Toby and Stephanie

We are Toby and Stephanie and live at Caerau Uchaf, we open our garden to the public for the main season and run a small cafe there. You can see more about us by YouTube clips such as Hickish business, or doing a search for Caerau Gardens. We live on family hill farming land, technically a mountain, so lots of high ground, also a lake, it’s a beautiful spot so do come and stay and see why we moved here over 25 years ago!
